Mariah Carey sang a furious tune on Sunday — with the pop diva’s camp blaming her disastrous New Year’s Eve performance on “sabotage” by the TV show’s producers.
Carey’s manager sent a letter on New Year’s Day to Dick Clark Productions, saying they set the “Emotions” singer up for failure by letting her take the stage before more than a million people in Times Square — and millions more watching at home — with malfunctioning sound gear.
“You know her inner ears were NOT working and your entire production team did not set her up to win,” the manager, Stella Bulochnikov, wrote to Mark Shimmel, whose company produced Carey’s TV nightmare, which was broadcast live on ABC.
“AND MARIAH KEPT TELLING THEM [something was wrong] ON STAGE IN REAL TIME,” Bulochnikov typed in all caps in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Post.
“THEY KEPT IGNORING HER. SHE TOOK A HIT HONORING HER COMMITMENT TO YOU. I SHOULD HAVE PULLED HER OFF THE STAGE THIS IS SABOTAGE.”
She ended the letter by demanding a “formal apology” and saying the singer may pursue legal action if no mea culpa is forthcoming.
